Kenneth Hite cut his teeth on desiging role playing games and comic books. That explains the tie in; the publisher is Atlas Games, not a noted purveyor of childrens' books. Mr. Hite is actually quite knowledgable about Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos, as a glance at his book Tour de Lovecraft will show.

Where the Deep Ones Are must, of course, be considered in context. It is a parody or send up of Maurice Sendak's revered classic, Where the Wild Things Are. The book's size, page count and artistic style are deliberately similar to Sendak's work. The difference is the little boy, Bobby (not Max), in this book is related to the Marsh family and his journey takes him to Innsmouth. Boy, do I have comments!

First of all, the art by Andy Hopp is beautiful. [...] takes you to his website where you can look at his galleries. I am not clever enough to tell what his medium was for this, inks vs painting, but he manages to give due homage to Sendak and create delightful monsters of his own.

This will be a confusing read for anyone not familiar with the story by HPL, The Shadow Over Innsmouth. To those in the know, the oblique (or not so oblique) references to the Esoteric Order of Dagon and interbreeding of humans and Deep Ones will be obvious. These readers will probably be amused by the story.

As far as I can tell, Atlas Games does not intend this as a children's book, but Amazon has (in my opinion, ill advisedly) created a link so you can buy Where the Wild Things Are and Where the Deep Ones Are as a package deal. Where the Deep Ones Are notes the church has a fish on it. It also refers to the Deep Ones taking away the pretty girls from Innsmouth under the sea for a rumpus.

I think this book is both hilarious and brilliant. I know a 6-year old boy and, as he loves scary-but-cute monsters and weird stuff, he will love this book - with the added bonus of introducing him to one of my favorite authors ever! (HP Lovecraft)

The love and respect of the source material is very evident as well. Great artwork, and a ton of a demented fun for kids and adults alike! Highly recommended!

As soon as I stumbled on the title I knew the stars were at last aligning themselves, and the oceans once more revealing nightmarish corpse cities from their hidden depths after countless eons. My excitement was rewarded with the happy tale of Bobby who pisses off his mum, which reminded me of another book I love; and gets going from there on his exciting adventure.

Unfortunately, Bobby's encounter with the Deep Ones will be like a pretty weird acid trip unless you are aware of Cthulhu. So if you can't even pronounce what I just typed, this book is not for you.

But if you can, happy bath time reading :)

A brilliant parody of Where the Wild Things Are! This book really appeals to my wit, and it is a great whimsical gift for the creepy cultist in your life! A cute retelling of The Shadow over Innsmouth, though not necessarily a kids' book. If you like the Cthulhu mythos, take a look at this. You'll love it!

A well-done homage to the Lovecraft mythos and a beloved children's book. The art and text are both very well-done, and it's nicely bound too. It was one of my geeky boyfriend's favorite birthday presents.

It is a wonderful Lovecraftian spoof of "where teh Wild Tings Are." The artwork is fantastic! The story is simple for a child to follow and not something that is going to scare them. It is a fun introduction to H. P. Lovecraft that my granddaughter will grow up listening to, and then reading herself. I really like this book!!

Hubby is a huge Lovecraft fan and "Where the wild things are" was one of his favorite books growing up, so this is a perfect book for him to share with our 8 year old daughter.
